This is a subject that has interested me for quite some time. I don't know to what haplogroups and subclades the remains in these tombs belong, but I sure would like to know.

Hochdorf

Hochdorf

Hochdorf

Kilchberg

Heuneburg (scroll down for the mounds)

I'll post more as I find them, and you can add some, too.

I would like to add some burial mounds from Saarland, my native country.

Reinheim
 
In the most famous and best preserved of these tombs we will never be able to detect any R-U152.  Isn't it nice to have at least that for sure?! :P

Here you can find further information about that archaeological site.

And here some pictures of the Reinheim finds (accompanying text in German).


And here is another - reconstructed - burial mound from Hesse, where I live now.

Glauberg

Unfortunately, most burial mounds are not very impressive and photogenic today - after centuries of erosion and ploughing...

So here is just a nice description of burial mounds and funeral customs in the vicinity of the Celtic circular fort at Otzenhausen.

Going on with my newly gained, slightly morbid collecting passion... ;-)

These videos provide information about some more celtic tumuli:

near Dörth and on Hochgerichtsheide in the Hunsrück-Middle Rhine region
